Notice of Injury
Notice of Injury legal definition: The function of notice of injury is making your employer aware that you have been hurt on the job. Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, an employee who is hurt on the job must report their injury to their employer. If the injury or illness is not reported within 120 days from the date of injury – or the date you were aware of a work-related illness – no compensation will be awarded.
When you report your injury you must:
Confirm the injury occurred while performing a work function
The date of the injury
Where the injury occurred
How the injury occurred
It should be noted that exceptions are made in cases that involve progressive diseases such as carpal tunnel syndrome and cancer.
